The story so far
The Knockouts is South Bedfordshire's premier instrumental garage punk band.
When Thrilled Skinny checked out to the big Peel Session in the sky in the early 1990s, members Andy Weizen (strings), J Hackson (keys) and Elliot Smoke (drums) got together with erstwhile T Skinny badge man Tim Fitzagre (percussion and face) and recorded a first demonstration cassette, Anthony in the UK. They then took some pictures, thought about Clod Magazine for a bit, then took seven years off.
Fast forward to this millenium and a storming return, which has seen The Knockouts garner huge criticism and crowds of dozens. Several albums have been recorded and gigs played. The Knockouts are now a quintet; now including Bedfordshire indie stalwart Jeff Henderson. They are decrepit men who make a little go a long way and are occasionally amused and accept invitations to play gigs and all that.
